30cm x 25cm hardboard.

I started this as a paintfest, splodging loads of colours together hoping it would become interesting. When it didn't, I gave it a silver overcoat and the day after squeezed tubes in random lines.

It didn't work. So I looked at it upside down, sideways and then I noticed the possibility of the 'lines' being fishing rods.

.....and ......here it is.

Sweet! But perhaps you could stand it upright, take another shot and crop?

.....thanks for the idea, but to be honest.....it doesn't photograph very well.

It will go into my 'done...' Archive and resurface in 27 years time when my son finds it in a box under other boxes in the junk room.

The 'lines' look like huge fish flying out of the water to me... it's a fun little painting and I really like it.

That is fun. Looks like the people are having a good time. Perhaps a fish fry painting should be next. :lol:

This is fun. I like the texture. Its a little like cake frosting. There is a local artist that paints familiar landmarks in a similar style. She also bedazzles the paintings with fake jewels etc. She also uses 'puffy paint' (Her words.) Her works sell very well at local art fairs.

Here it is perspective-corrected and cropped so we can concentrate on the painting!:)

(They always look better without the extraneous surroundings!:lol:)

It really is a fun painting this - a party but not a fishing one!
Here we have a group of plein aire painters going crackers (maybe it's all the Weed growing wild?) so they're seeing how far they can shoot with their tubes of various colours ....... they're French by the look of the top right artist!;) :lol:
